ITA Airways launched as the replacement for Alitalia as the new Italian national airline. The company debuted its new blue livery with the Italian tricolor on the rudder. According to an announcement, the Alitalia brand was acquired with the aim of managing the transition to the new livery and reserving the right to future uses of the brand. Alfredo Altavilla, president, said the new brand and livery are “the symbol of changes, of the beginning of a different adventure.” The airline will operate with a network of 44 destinations and 59 routes, which will increase to 58 destinations and 74 routes in 2022 and 74 destinations and 89 routes in 2025. ITA will focus its activity on the Rome Fiumicino and Milan Linate airports. Pending the identification of a strategic partner, the carrier will join the Sky Team airline alliance. A new loyalty program called Volare has four levels: smart, plus, premium and executive. ITA will start with 52 aircraft (7 wide-body, 45 narrow-body), to grow to 78 in 2022, with the gradual inclusion of new-generation aircraft that will reach 75% of the fleet by 2025. An agreement with Air Lease Corporation will provide for the leasing of an additional 31 new-generation Airbus aircraft — long-, medium- and short-haul.
